Hello. I just joined the group as I'm making a Tennissee music box. Dulcimer Day in Duluth is coming soon. I want to have one or two to offer along with my assortment of guits, fiddles, amps etc. .. Dave

Two of my efforts. 2 Feral Flying Pig boxes and 5 small Padron boxes.

Comment by FerneL on April 3, 2016 at 5:01pm

Sadly the box was verry used during a transport to a show, but it still cool to play !!

Comment by FerneL on April 3, 2016 at 5:00pm

Built only for fun but in fact it's pleasant to play even on 2 strings we call it the windows !! It's in strong plexiglass with a piezo !!

A single coil duclitar !!

Comment by Rooster Reaves on April 3, 2016 at 11:46am

That's a really nice Dulcitar!!!  Did you do a short scale?  I've been wanting to make one like that.

Comment by Bluesheart on April 2, 2016 at 3:19pm

Celtic themed Dulcitar. Having a lot of fun with it. Trying to learn some Celtic/Scottish tunes for it.

Comment by Jesse Lively on December 5, 2015 at 12:10pm

First dulcimer completed, thought I'd share it with you guys. Inspired to make one when I seen the one that Bluseheart made! Thanks to all for the ideas and the inspiration!
